shall be held by them. And let them also return, preaching the  gospel by the way, bearing record of the things which are re vealed unto them: for verily the sound must go forth from this  place into all the world; and unto the uttermost parts of the  earth, the gospel must be preached unto every creature, with  signs following them that believe. And behold the Son of  man cometh: Amen.

Revelation given in Zion, August, 1831.
 
1 Behold, blessed, saith the Lord, are they who have come up  unto this land with an eye single to my glory, according to my  commandments: for them that live shall inherit the earth, and  them that die shall rest from all their labors, and their works  shall follow them, and they shall receive a crown in the man sions of my Father, which I have prepared for them; yea,  blessed are they whose feet stand upon the land of Zion, who  have obeyed my gospel, for they shall receive for their reward  the good things of the earth; and it shall bring forth in its  strength: and they shall also be crowned with blessings from  above; yea and with commandments not a few; and with rev elations in their time: they that are faithful and diligent be fore me:
2 Wherefore I give unto them a commandment, saying thus:  Thou shalt love the Lord thy God, with all thy heart, with all  thy might, mind, and strength: and in the name of Jesus  Christ thou shalt serve him. Thou shalt love thy neighbor as  thyself. Thou shalt not steal. Neither commit adultery, nor  kill, nor do any thing like unto it. Thou shalt thank the Lord  thy God in all things. Thou shalt offer a sacrifice unto the  Lord thy God in righteousness: even that of a broken heart  and a contrite spirit. And that thou mayest more fully keep  thyself unspotted from the world, thou shalt go to the house of  prayer and offer up thy sacraments upon my holy day; for  verily this is a day appointed unto you to rest from your la bors, and to pay thy devotions unto the Most High; neverthe less thy vows shall be offered up in righteousness on all days,  and at all times; but remember that on this, the Lord’s day,  thou shalt offer thine oblations, and thy sacraments, unto the  Most High, confessing thy sins unto thy brethren, and before  the Lord.
3 And on this day thou shalt do none other thing, only let  thy food be prepared with singleness of heart, that thy fasting  may be perfect, or in other words, that thy joy may be full.— [p. 140]
